Menu Plan Monday

With our school routine well-established, I’m finding that the organization is spilling into other areas of life too. I am much more of a schedule-oriented person, so I like the order that fall brings 🙂 I hope to make a couple fun desserts this week as well and I am contemplating “52 weeks of cookies.” Yes – trying a new cookie recipe every week for a year. Not sure I am that ambitious, but… maybe? Here’s what I’m planning for dinners this week:

  • Sunday: Take-out Chinese food
  • Monday: Slow cooked kielbasa in a bun, oven fries, salad
  • Tuesday: Ham & cheese and pepperoni & cheese calzones (from current Kraft magazine, well not the pepperoni, but I’m swapping), salad
  • Wednesday: Meatloaf muffins, twice-baked (or mashed) potatoes, CSA veggies
  • Thursday: Greek chicken, Mediterranean red potatoes (I’ll have 2 Crock Pots going for this dinner!), salad
  • Friday: Apple pecan pork medallions, roasted winter squash, cole slaw or salad
  • Saturday: Take-out (Jake has a birthday party at the mall, so we’ll probably grab something in the Food Court while he’s playing with his friends)

  1. Your menu sounds great! Wow, I haven’t had Chinese food in such a LONG time. Well, maybe since 2004/2005 … I remember eating some when I worked in Cohoes, when I was pregnant with Lucas … and it totally did NOT agree with me. I haven’t had it since then. I miss this great Chinese place in Bloomington, IN. *sigh* I plan to do chicken stir-fry sometime this week. Need to come up with a yummy stir-fry sauce to use!

  2. Meal planning went kind of crazy this week because after I planned and shopped I realized we weren’t going to be home 3 nights this week (oh brain, where have you gone???). But I’m pretty good about getting things that will hold, so not much harm done … anyway, the plan was:
    1. Nachos (made ’em already, they were great)
    2. Meatloaf with leftover squash casserole (tonight’s dinner, I think)
    3. Spinach/feta strudel and cheese/rice strudel
    4. Clam chowder (really easy Rachael Ray recipe)
    5. Corn/shrimp bisque
    6. uhh… fish stick soft tacos, I think
